Re: “Mosaic Templars: Update

I guess you missed the comment posted under the original article - Karen Smith (white) of Natural Heritage was rehired via Governor's Office.... Maybe it does take an army for a person to get back a job after being wrongly fired - maybe this person was lucky enough to have the backing of individuals that knew the truth and stood up for it. The governor does not stick his neck out rehiring anyone unless the facts are that the firing was proven unfair. I get where you are coming from that there might need to be some rules about clubs for special interest groups. Truth is the groups involved in reaching out to the Governor's office for Mr. McGill were of mixed ethnicity (whites as well) other than the Black Legislative Caucus - so don't waste a lot of time nitpicking on this one. Aren't we concerned about how someone could be fired for made up reasons enough to say "let's all demand a process so this never happens to any of us"? Right now the process for a state employee is not fair at all - and above a certain grade there is no process at all. Or do we throw tomatoes at someone who relied on groups of people they could trust to help right a wrong, wouldn't you?

Re: “Mosaic Templars director rehired

Well, certainly a few unopened emails and a speech that was or was not given would not amount to a reason for dismissal. Sounds suspicious to let a Director go for reasons given. And I doubt the governor would get involved unless there was weighted evidence to support Mr. McGill's return. Having been in government a long time I know it takes a lot of paperwork to unmake a decision that has been made. The Governor is too busy be involved in something less than needs his attention. He has too many demands that are high priority on his schedule. This must have been a true case of injustice.
